partnership

ACSI Partners

ACSI is proud to connect your school with the following partners who are reputable service providers and fellow servants of Christ.

Betereinders

Betereinders is a movement that promotes reconciliation and restitution with the aim of reducing poverty in South Africa. Part of this process is a redefinition of identity and formation of new relationships. Our ‘Zebra Crossing’ online platform helps people from the townships and suburbs to get to know each other. Betereinders are value driven: we don't complain, we do good things and we work inclusively. Our work includes ‘white work’ and ‘real talk’, whereby the former is preparation for the latter. More important than joining us, is simply to be a Betereinder: don’t complain, do good, work together.

Bethany House

The Bethany House Trust initiates, implements, co-ordinates and manages projects critical to the children and youth of South Africa.

The Trust – established in 1998 in response to the critical need of young people for shelter, access to primary health services and education – is registered as a children’s charity trust with the High Court, is registered as a non-profit organization (NPO) with the South African Department of Social Development and as a public benefit organization (PBO) with the South African Revenue Service (SARS) and as such, enjoys section 18a Tax Exempt Status.

• Boikhutso Cluster Foster Care: community-based homes which accommodate up to six children per house in foster care of trained and vetted foster parents.
• Child Protection Services: two programs are facilitated.
1. Victim Empowerment Program (psycho-social intervention) for approximately 500 learners/month at 40 schools in the West Rand / Soweto region; learners suffered some form of trauma.
2. Intermediary Services for child witnesses who have to testify in criminal court proceedings. Almost 5 000 child witnesses have been assisted through this specialised program.
• Reality Check: a substance abuse diversion project assisting youth with substance abuse challenges.
• Muldersdrift Child & Family Welfare Unit: a fully-fledged welfare office servicing the Muldersdrift community.
• The Pregnancy Care Centre assists women with unplanned pregnancies. The focus is on youth / students and commercial sex workers (who are often at risk of abandoning their new born babies).
•A telephonic “Child Abuse Advice & Referral Service”, operational since 1996, where parents, caregivers and educators can access immediate, professional and correct information on the reporting of crimes, etc. Appropriate referrals are made in the event of acute or chronic abuse, and the progress of all cases are tracked with the police and welfare agencies;
•The Centre of Learning develops curriculum material for and facilitates the ‘Professional Parenting Program’ that equips the prospective foster/adoption parent with the skills required to become an ‘alternative parent’. Most children who lived in Bethany House have been placed back into ‘alternative’ nuclear families that completed this program.
Currently, approximately 369 children benefit from the Bethany House Trust’s programs every day (134 512 per annum).

Gadise Skills Development

We are in the business to add value to the Schools and young people we encounter, since 2016. To succeed we need more than academic achievement. We provide simple and effective ways to develop the attitudes that have shaped the leaders and champions of our world. Education, IQ, luck, talent, connections, good looks and access to money are all factors that contribute to our progress, but what matters most is the Right Mental Attitude. Unfortunately, this vital area gets very little attention – and so we have made this our business.

Our services
We run a Personal Development Program called Young Achievers for Grade 5-7 and Teen Achievers for Grade 8-11. This is an extra mural activity which takes place in the school’s premises for a year and parents pay for the services. Leadership advantage is a program that is in the process of accreditation with Services SETA and is aimed at the learners in Grade 10 to 3rd year of University.

Show Up: this program is designed to help young people to prepare for their circle tests, focusing on methods to use when preparing to study. We are in a school providing mentorship to the leaders Grade by Grade every term of the school.

We organise and run four types of Camps:

• Leadership Camps for elected prefects.
• Induction Camps: this is huge gap in our schools, many of our grade 8 leaners are not prepared for life in high school and we run a camp that gets them ready for high school life.
• Team Building Camp: we get leaners or even the teaching staff to catch and understand the dynamics of team work and build a healthy culture around work.
• Venture Camps: this is more like a personal mastery camp. We push and guide young people through obstacle courses, challenging some limitations and self-doubts in their mind-set.

It has been our experience that most people want a better life, but very few want to hear that they must do something about having it. This is mainly because people find it difficult to step out of their comfort zones. Let us help you get started, and then build momentum – one step at a time.

Heart Reach

Heart Reach educates youth on sexual choices with a view to re-establish their values thereby empowering them to fulfil their potential and make healthy and positive life choices.

Heart Reach was formed in 1996 to come alongside women facing an unwanted pregnancy. We offer counselling to help them through their ‘panic and indecision’. We network with adoption agencies should they opt for adoption. In the event they choose abortion, we will not refer them to an abortion clinic, but we will offer post abortion counselling should the need arise.

In 2000 we felt that counselling after the fact was not enough, and wrote an abstinence based sex talk to be presented to school goers from grade 7 through to matric. The talk is direct, relevant and interactive. We allow the class to ask questions, and to be completely open with their opinions without judgement or back lash. In 2014 we got involved with the fight against Human Trafficking and developed a “Be Safe” talk suitable for grade 2 to 5, largely to create an awareness to the dangers of human trafficking. However, the talk also equips children to stand up for themselves, to combat bullying, exposure to porn and molestation, which is rampant in our children’s lives.

Heart Reach is a non-profit organisation, supported by churches and individuals.

Heartlines

Heartlines is a Christian organisation that has spent the past 14 years developing national best practice, values-based social change interventions. While we work across all sectors of society (workplace, school, communities, etc.) our key objective is to provide the church with culturally appropriate and current resources that help answer the question “how then shall we live?” Our interventions are based on best practice social change theory. We are process rather than topic experts, and partner with experts on our chosen topics. Each new intervention starts with extensive research on our chosen topic. This includes literature reviews, expert opinion and focus group feedback.



We particularly focus on barriers to change. Based on our research, we develop intervention strategies that have stories as their central pillar. Research has shown that story is one of the strongest influencers of our attitudes, hopes, fears, and values. Story is also a universal language that cuts across cultures and communities. We use film, TV, internet, and print to tell stories that people identify with and are challenged by. Our mass media products are designed to provide a supportive environment and to stimulate demand for our face-to-face interventions. These interventions include group discussions, accountability groups, social media, workshops, and leadership seminars. We concentrate our work in the environments most conducive to values interventions; these include families, businesses, schools and churches. All our interventions include process and summative evaluations that are conducted by external researchers.

Our work has included “8 weeks 8 values” – Eight films and resources; “Values in action” the series Hopeville and resources; “Values and money” the film Nothing for Mahala and resources. These have been used extensively across South Africa and other countries, reaching millions of people with significant impact. This track record has positioned Heartlines as a credible trusted partner for both Christian and non-Christian organisations.

Our teams are currently running the following campaigns across the country:

Values and Money which focuses on:
1. Honesty in earning
2. Responsibility in spending
3. Wisdom in borrowing
4. Self-control in saving
5. Generosity in giving/sharing

What's Your Story?
Using personal stories to facilitate cohesion and collaboration at institutional as well as societal levels.

Tools we use:
• Beyond the river movie
• Bridge leadership engagement
• LO Classroom discussions on Beyond the river and personal storytelling

MICROBOTICS

In a growing world that continually adopts modern technologies and devices, we at Microbotics envision a future of young “Digital Makers”, not only digital consumers!

Young school children and adults have benefited through the "hands on" practical classes, as our unique modules combine real world projects and software programming (coding) to give the learners an exciting and comprehensive experience as they explore the world of “digital making”.

Robots, programming (coding), snack boards and electronic bread boards are a few unique core components that help make our modules fun and educational.

Ownership has changed the way students respond to the classes, as they want to build and program their own “bots” and breadboards. Therefore, each student gets their own book and kit.

We provide
a) Curriculums
b) Materials/kits supply
c) Teacher Training

Open Schools Worldwide

As a Public Benefit Organisation, the primary beneficiary is the marginalised child who is disadvantaged due to the lack of educational opportunities and are therefore non-numerate and illiterate. Open Schools Worldwide motivates, facilitates, trains and equips community-based organisations to provide a bridging education program that teaches marginalised and age inappropriate learners. The goal is to teach them up to grade three competency levels and help these disadvantaged children to fit back into the country’s formal education facilities. The program also provides an after-care and supportive/intervention education method to help children cope with their learning difficulties and problem areas.

This initiative was born in 2002 by Dr Phil Renicks and Dr Alan McIlhenny, initially operating out of the newly established ACSI South Africa office. God had planted a vision in their hearts to create a “Children at Risk Task Force” consisting of eleven Christian educators from seven countries. Today Open Schools Worldwide has projects in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ethiopia and new requests for our training program in Malawi and Nigeria. We look forward to being a catalyst of change for the more than 58 million children in Africa who cannot gain access to formal schooling.

Core Values of OSWW:
• responding to the educational needs of children who are shut out of the traditional school system for reasons beyond their control
• partnering with like-minded organizations and individuals to deliver literacy, numeracy and life skill instruction for children at risk of educational failure
• developing compassionate relationships and a supportive environment to overcome obstacles to learning
• creating flexible, innovative strategies that are appropriate to the unique needs of the children we serve.

The Safety Continuum… This can range from feeling ‘safe’ to feeling ‘unsafe’.
Secrets… Protective Behaviours teaches children how to identify the difference between safe and unsafe secrets and how to respond.

Theme 2 - “We can talk with SOMEONE about ANYTHING no matter WHAT it is” Protective Behaviours encourages individuals to communicate how they are feelingand includes both safe and unsafe feelings.

Reflective learning (Mathematics Assessment)

Reflective learning (Mathematics Assessment) Are you wondering why your learners are struggling to understand what you’re teaching in class? Or do you need to understand the level of a new set of learners in your class or school?

In existing class time, it is almost impossible to deeply understand every learner's unique strengths and weaknesses, never mind teach them what they may have missed from their previous years. Our diagnostics and self-study catch-up curriculum support your work by helping learners identify their gaps and fast-track catching up on their missed learning so that they can engage fully with the content you’re teaching. Why partner with reflective learning? With foundational learning gaps in Maths growing as learners move through grades, there is a need for schools to ensure missed learnings are caught up effectively so that they are adequately prepared for FET phase. Reflective Learning has been developed with this in mind:
1. It is scalable across online and offline contexts.
2. It tracks conceptual knowledge for individuals and cohorts.
1. It enables teachers to meet personal needs without a large investment of time and energy.
3. It helps learners to engage better with grade-level content. It helps learners to engage better with grade-level content.
4. The approach has shown to have significant impact.

We believe we have discovered the recipe to transform weekly music lessons into a lifetime journey of fun and exploration for our students. From a young age we offer kids the opportunity to learn to play in a band with our “JamBands” program.

With our Showcase events, students build confidence and present their talent and skills to an audience and loved ones. When students progress and produce their own content, we offer recording opportunities in our state-of-the-art recording studio.
Through all these services, we are able to make learning an instrument easier, simpler and faster.

YFC (Youth for Christ SA)

The Youth for Christ movement was originally born in America in the mid-1940s through an impulse from the heart of God that simultaneously touched dozens of leaders in different places with a concern to reach out to the young people normal church channels were missing.
YFC services currently offered and how it impacts and benefits schools:

YFC’s goal is to engage with young people in the places where they gather. Through our interactions with them we endeavour to provide opportunities that will see them activate their potential to become engaged participants within their communities.



Where We Go: churches, schools, tertiary institution and community centres.

What We Offer: leadership development; youth ministry development; a range of life skills; personal development; sports coaching and after-school initiatives through our dynamic interactive workshops that can be run at your own or a neutral venue. We are able to facilitate a learning process that is designed to equip leaders, educators and parents of young people.

The rising unemployment rate in South Africa continues to concern us. To address this problem, we have a skills development plan that includes:
• A platform that will enable young people to pursue entrepreneurship as a viable option;
• A workplace readiness program that will assist young people in preparing for the world of work.
